In order to unlock this achievement you must complete a physical punchup with your hat remaining on your head.

There are lots of opportunities to get this through the game. A great place to get this is during The Red Lipstick murder, you will interview Jacob Henry in his home, he becomes angry and attacks you, this point is perfect for two reasons, 1, is that he is a single enemy and 2, if he knocks your hat off just allow him to beat you to death and you will will restart at the beginning of the fight giving you infinite amount of attempts.

In terms of strategy I found it was best to just go on the offensive and attack right from the start rather than trying to dodge, just hold down LT and keep spamming A as soon as you get a prompt to do a finsher do it, i actually took a bodyshot but my hat stayed on, keep punching him the trick is to not allow him to get any punches in. if you struggle and can't get it here then wait for the following case.

An even easier place to get this is on the case The Golden Butterfly, when you reach Belmont highschool you enter a chase, don't tackle the suspect instead keep chasing him, eventually he will stop, and fight you, this guy is super weak, he can be dropped in two punches, he even punched me in the face and my hat stayed on
